He’s worked with leading hip hop artists such as Wu-Tang Clan and Redman, and has placed music in advertisements for companies such as Coca Cola, Absolut Vodka, and BMW. He’s got a wealth of experience in the industry, and offers real, practical advice about how to establish yourself as a producer or engineer.

This episode is brought to you by EDM Foundations.

EDM Foundations is my course for new producers, those who’ve been producing for under 12 months, or even those who’ve just started. You can learn more about it here.

The whole idea of the EDM Foundations course is that you learn the fundamentals of music production by actually doing and not just learning concepts. The course consists of 12+ hours worth of streamable video where I walk you through the creation of 3 songs, and give you advice for creating your own original.

We’ve had over 800 people sign up for the course, many of them have had great results. Hope to see you in there.
